4. Oh, I guess they do.

I was thinking people would have to go to the door with an empty bottle to fill up. I really never seriously considered bar food as "food".

6. There are indeed places

that serve beer that will fill up an empty growler bottle to go. I wonder if such service is covered under the rules.

7. Really?!?

I bet they are ahead of the game right now. Others will have to see how they do it effectively to stay in business.

9. When I lived in NY

I rarely went to the city, but in my community about a half hour away from Manhattan, one of my favorite places was a beer bar that routinely did this, as well as selling beer for consumption on premises. I knew of all kinds of beer bars in the city, like Blind Tiger, I would imagine that they filled growlers, too.

This doesn't happen with Bud-Miller-Coors, but is pretty common with craft beers that are only sold by microbreweries that don't have canning or bottling lines. Being as you use the same container over and over, it's environmentally friendly, too.

11. I have seen drive-thrus for alcoholic beverages in Louisiana.

They are like 40 proof Big Gulps. Don't they have DUI enforcement there?

13. Yes, I've seen them in Ohio

One particularly odd thing was the back page of a telephone book in the Olympia, Washington area from about twenty years ago. The Olympia brewery was up and running then, and this ad on the back page hawked an attorney firm specializing in DWI cases, down in the smaller print the ad said, "Easy Freeway Access, Close To Brewery"

I think it actually made Jay Leno's show in that bit he did with funny stuff from all over.

5. Services like Uber eats and Grubhub.

A guy called into a local talk show and said he was making $400 a day doing deliveries when his max in the past was $150.

There may be a lot of bars without a contract with them, though. Maybe they will be able to work something out to list more establishments and contract more drivers quickly.

10. Did they close their schools yet? It doesn't make much sense to close

everything else and leave schools open.

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza today announced the City will move towards a new Remote Learning Model for all school days until Spring Recess. Students will not report to school buildings for instruction during this time. School buildings are scheduled to reopen to students following Spring Recess on Monday, April 20, 2020.
